Reims to make up for last weekend’s debacle


Reims are waiting to hear whether left-back Samuel Bouhours will return from injury. In all other positions the visitors are at full strength. Manager Michel Der Zakarian is bound to make changes after seeing his side lost 5-2 at bottom club Laval last weekend.
Nimes midfielder Theo Valls missed their 2-0 home win over Orleans last weekend. He’s an injury doubt heading into this fixture. Nimes’ 13-goal top scorer Rachid Alioui has been out since last month so the team’s getting used to life without him. Ivorian Christian Kouakou will deputise once again.
Suspended: None
Doubtful: Samuel Bouhours (knee)
Injured/unavailable: Frederic Bulot (knee), Gaetan Charbonnier (knee)
Nimes Olympique
Suspended: None
Doubtful: Slimane Sissoko (leg), Theo Valls (leg)

“For me our chances of winning promotion are over,” claimed shellshocked Reims manager Michel Der Zakarian after his side’s 5-2 defeat at bottom club Laval last weekend.
It was a remarkable defeat for a couple of reasons, the first being Laval had never looked likely to score five times in a single match on any previous occasion this season. And the second, the reason that infuriated Der Zakarian, was that Reims had led 2-1 and looked in complete control, only for a Remi Oudin penalty miss on 49 minutes to signal a total change of direction, Reims conceding four times in the second-half to suffer their remarkable loss.
Der Zakarian is wrong to write of Reims’ promotion chances, however. His side are jus 4pts off the top three positions heading into the weekend and only 3pt behind opponents Nimes, who currently sit forth in the table. That means this match is a fantastic opportunity for Reims to move up through the positions and at the same time take a big chunk out of one of their rivals’ promotion chances.
Der Zakarian is an expert a motivating his players straight after a below-par performance so Reims ought to be transformed this weekend. And while Nimes arrive on a tremendous run of results they haven’t played as well as their recent victories suggests, so they’re likely to struggle against pumped-up hosts. Back the home win.
Reims’ all-time home record against Nimes is W17-D9-L2.
